As the case of James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond continues to heat up, yesterday (May 23) in Brooklyn Federal Court a new piece of evidence was introduced to his file.

According to a Proffer Agreement from October of last year, Jimmy revealed to prosecutors he loaned Wyclef Jean 60,000 dollars in drug money.

While the Haitian-American artist did not have any knowledge of the origin of the funds, Rosemond supported Jean’s 2010 bid as Haitian president as well as helped organize a concert for President Michel Martelly last year. The Haitian government began keeping a close watch on the pair after several checks totaling to $80 thousand were sent to Rosemond from business properties of Jean’s.

The former manager of artists such as Game and Gucci Mane revealed the information as well as other key notes including the details of his $10 Million drug operation in an attempt to reach a Cooperation Agreement. The Cooperation Agreement was thrown out after Rosemond was found with a working cell phone in jail. Text message exchanges were also discovered between him and his brother Mario, who is also a fugitive.

The trial continues this week.
